Another thing just added: Change the sensitivity of your adaptive xenons from slower --> normal --> sensitive.

I just tried it in my garage and it makes a big difference on how the headlights turn. I will try to post a video up of it in action!

Thank you !!

Can also add the headlight sensitivity switch to the instrument cluster by toggling through with the BC stalk for those without iDrive. If you have iDrive you can have it in both places. Also, efficient dynamics can be turned off using the BC stalk also and toggled if you don't want to see the display.

Very cool stuff. I have about 20 videos that I want to post, just haven't had any time yet.

More to come!! (I also updated the .pdf again --> http://www.bpmsport.com/BPMCoding.pdf

Absolutely -- Provided I can find it in the code, which I should be able to. BMW has changed a bunch of things from year to year, but 95% of the time I can locate the correct functions and perform the proper coding without issue. If you'd like me to disable the two LED's, please come to the meet and I'll take care of it there.

Also, can you add automatic switching between day and night mode in iDrive? I can't believe that feature isn't standard on the 3 Series (but is on the 7 Series!?!) and I thought I saw it on your coding PDF at one time but it seems to have disappeared with the most recent version. From doing a bit of research, it appears some have had success getting the Automatic option to appear in iDrive but it doesn't actually work when selected....

You guys might enjoy this failed attempt at showing the efficient dynamics display .. lol



(watch to the end).

I will be working on uploading videos today, check back later for more.

Servotronic and Auto Start/Stop

Mike I emailed you about these, but in case others in the forum are interested, here are two more things I'd love to be able to have coded:

Having the Engine Auto Start/Stop on 2011.5 M3s start in its last state rather than defaulting to OFF? Someone got this coded by a dealer in Australia so it must be possible.

Having M3s start in Servotronic Sport mode available so I don't have to push the M button to get it -- can't understand why BMW doesn't allow this!! Ideally I'd like to preserve a way to access Normal mode (maybe it can start up in Sport but if you go into M Drive and back out, it's Normal?)

The orange LED is on the side of the headlight, and they changed it in the later models.

As far as the automatic switching, I think it may require some additional hardware. I've enabled the option, but am not convinced that it works properly - hence the reason why I removed it from the coding list.

The best way to do it is probably to set a memory key (because it acts as a toggle when day/night are the only things on the list). If I code the automatic mode in, you lose the toggle because three options become available instead of two.

Those of you in the LA area should come to the Individual Meet today and check out the coding in person.

I should be able to set the start/stop to remember its last position. As far as the steering being on sport when you start, I have to check into that. It might be controlled by the DME. I'll look into it

  • DVD in motion
  • Disable iDrive accept message
  • Disable iDrive fasten belts warning
  • Rolling windows up with key
  • Allow windows to roll up with door interruption
  • Euro corner delete
  • Welcome lights (instant on angel eyes)
  • Turn off annoying key in ignition gong

The seatbelt and key in ignition chimes drove me crazy, and I couldn't ever find anyone else who could do the euro corner delete (turning off the amber LED while headlights are on). I'm happy with Mike's work and highly recommend.
Thanks for the insight! I haven't heard of one unhappy customer yet.

If your car has folding mirrors from the factory, then it's possible. If it didn't come with then, I should be able to retrofit the folding function provided that the mirror has motors and is wired properly to the car .
